Introduction to the Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment Initiative Amit Khare, Program Manager, CLASP May 16, 2013
Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) High-Level Policy Dialogue Technical Cooperation Engagement with the Private-Sector and Other Stakeholders to drive investment in clean energy and efficiency
The Super-Efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) Initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial helps participating governments accelerate the transition to a clean energy future through effective appliance and equipment efficiency programs.SEAD Clean Energy Ministerial 16 Participating Governments AustraliaBrazilCanadaEuropean Commission FranceGermanyIndiaJapan KoreaMexicoRussiaSouth Africa SwedenUnited Arab EmiratesUnited Kingdom United StatesChina (observer) Partners
SEAD Initiative Goals Engage governments, private sector, and NGOs to tap the large potential for energy and consumer savings, and environmental benefits available through improved equipment and appliance efficiency; Provide a framework through which government experts, and others as appropriate, can engage in peer-to-peer collaboration on equipment and appliance efficiency topics; and Highlight potential offered by and opportunities for action on appliance and equipment efficiency at the CEM, IPEEC, and other high-level dialogues.
SEAD Objectives and Activities Inefficient appliances Visit superefficient.org Awards, Procurement, Incentives, Labeling Super-efficient appliances Energy Efficiency of the Market Standards
6 Standards & Labeling Awards, Incentives & Procurement 2013 Global Energy Efficiency Medal for Flat- panel Televisions The U.S. has committed $20M over 5 years for SEAD Active cooperation with APEC, IEA-4E, and other international forums
SEAD Activities and Benefits ActivitiesBenefitsExample Peer-to-peer information sharing on standards and labels Facilitate government adoption of cost-effective appliance efficiency policies New standards for LED street lighting luminaire standards in India Technical Analysis Reveal energy saving opportunities Ceiling fans could be 100% more efficient with existing, cost-effective technology Awards, Procurement, Incentives Accelerate market transformation Upcoming SSL Award Adopting best-practice appliance efficiency policies in SEAD economies could save 2000 TWh/year of electricity by 2030, and yield cumulative net national savings of over US$1 trillion through 2030.
SEAD Procurement Working Group Who: Canada, Mexico, India, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States What: Leverage the bulk purchasing power of public and private sector procurement to promote energy efficient appliances and equipment globally How: Engage in supporting policy and programs, build strategic partnerships to achieve goal Why: Public procurement programs can lead by example and raise consumer awareness. Public procurement is significant enough to create a market signal for demand of efficient products, and cooperation can accelerate market transformation A core activity of the Working Group is street lighting, as this is typically one of the largest sources of energy consumption under a municipality’s direct control.
SEAD Activities in India India actively participates in the Awards, Procurement, and Standards and Labeling Working Groups Participation in the SEAD Global Efficiency Medal Regional and Global Awards Competition The Bureau of Energy Efficiency Leads the SEAD Efficient Lighting Collaboration – 10 SEAD countries participate in government-to- government technical exchanges to support energy efficient standards and labeling programs India hosted the fourth Clean Energy Ministerial in April 2013
